Needham Bank supports BCRT

Needham Bank Challenge, December 2012
On Track with the Bay Colony Rail Trail
The Bay Colony Rail Trail (BCRT) is the 7-mile long recreational path that traverses through the towns of Needham, Dover and Medfield.
Dear Friends,

We’re delighted to announce that Needham Bank has offered another generous gift, along with a challenge, to support the Bay Colony Rail Trail Association (BCRTA).

Needham Bank was among the first donors to step up and support the BCRTA in a major way when we first started our adventure.

Because the bank is our local community bank – their folks work here and live here – they can see that a safe and beautiful rail trail would be a wonderful asset for all of us who live in the area.

To help us to push ahead with the trail, Needham Bank has extended a challenge that kicks off on January 2, 2013:

For every BCRT supporter who doesn’t currently have a checking account at Needham Bank and who chooses to open one, the Bank will donate $100 to the BCRTA.  Just mention this offer when you open your account. The numbers get quite impressive when you consider that we now have a couple thousand supporters.

Eric Morse, VP at Needham Bank, explained, “We know that people don’t change banks every day, but for BCRTA supporters who are considering doing so in 2013, we hope you’ll consider Needham Bank.   With branches in Needham, Wellesley, Dedham, Westwood and Medfield it’s a great way to show your support of BCRTA. If you’d rather not come into one of our branches, we’ll come to your office or home. It’s so easy to participate in this program. Please contact one of our Branch Managers to schedule an appointment.”

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday and a very happy New Year.

Best regards,

The BCRTA Board
